Tortuga Rum Cake & Blue Mountain Coffee Sponsor Spotlight Review

You are going to love the great folks at Tortuga Rum because they have come to my rescue and helped me put together an outstanding package to be given away during the Fall Into Winter Giveaway Blog Hop that starts on October 15th and ends on the 29th. The winner of my package will get a 33 oz. rum cake and a bag of their wonderful Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee.
I was able to review the original Golden Rum Cake along with the coffee. I have tried the chocolate rum cake and the coconut rum cake also in the past. I wish I could tell you about the other flavors but those are the only three I know about. Please stop by their site and see all the other great flavors they have for you to choose from. I hope to one day get a chance to try the Cinnamon Raisin one. I it is just as awesome as the ones I have already reviewed!
Oh, and this is the wonderful Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee that you will also get to try along with the cake that you choose.  Their authentic Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is the finest and most distinguished coffee in the world. Selected beans are roasted and ground, then vacuum packed immediately, ensuring maximum freshness, while locking in the rich taste and aroma.

It is just a nice refreshing coffee that tastes awesome because Tortuga Rum only accepts the darkest, richest Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee beans to create this distinctive blend that I know you will enjoy!

I also got to try the Coconut Rum Cake and I have to admit that this one is my absolute favorite so far. I really did like the other two but this last time when I was sent a small Coconut Cake along with the bigger Golden Rum Cake to test, it was all mine! Mike doesn't like coconut so it was pure heaven to get to eat it all by myself. I was very surprised I lasted several days before the last bite was consumed.  I tried to pace myself so I wouldn't eat it all at once and it was worth every last crumb! If you love coconut, then you will want to experience this one, I promise you! Something about rum and coconut together make an awesome combination!

Each cake is baked fresh daily in the Cayman Islands with only the finest natural ingredients. The only preservative used is their specially blended "5-year-old", oak barrel aged Tortuga Gold Rum. Each cake is individually hand glazed then vacuum packed, ensuring a shelf life of 6 months, or indefinitely if refrigerated or frozen.

There are so many other items that they make and sell also, as you can see from the above picture. It is called the Tortuga Picnic Pack which includes a 16oz Original Golden Rum Cake - Perfect for picnics and no refrigeration needed, + Caribbean Sauce Pack - Jerk Sauce, Hell-Fire Sauce & Gourmet Steak Sauce (5oz ea.) with recipes, + 10oz Pepper Jelly - great for glazes or as an appetizer served with cream cheese. Gosh, just reading about it makes me want to get one!  All of these would make great Christmas gifts!

Lastly, I thought this might make an awesome Christmas present, it is called Golden Gourmet Gift Basket. There are all kinds of goodies in the beautiful dark willow basket. It is filled with a 16 oz chocolate rum cake, 16 oz gold bar rum cake, 16 oz bottle of wildflower honey, 8 oz bag of rum cream gourmet coffee, 5 oz bottle of hell-fire pepper sauce and 5 oz bottle of sweet heat Caribbean pepper sauce. *Available in USA only **

Or you could get this ULTIMATE GOURMET GIFT BASKET for the special someone in your life who deserves a little bit of it all! This dark willow basket is filled with a 33oz original golden rum cake, a 3-pack of Tortuga Caribbean sauce pack which includes a 5 oz bottle of Jamaican jerk sauce, 5 oz bottle of Caribbean steak sauce and 5 oz bottle Caribbean hell-fire sauce, 10 oz pack of Tortuga rum fudge, 8 oz bag of port royal mountain blend gourmet coffee, and 18.3oz can of Caribbean rum punch mix.

*Available in USA only **Based on availability, we reserve the right to make product substitution items of comparable value.

I hope I have given you guys alot of choices and there are so many more on their site that I did not touch on. I could easily make up another whole page but I don't want to take away from the original prize, which is the 33 oz. Rum Cake and the Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee that the winner will get. Oh, while you are there, register for the Caribbean Cruise for Two that they are giving away.

I'm familiar with the Tortuga name because my daughter had the raisin and rum cake. It was incredible. But I didn't realize they also had the coffee. Those gift baskets look pretty amazing in themselves. Thanks for posting the review.

I honestly had no idea that these rum cakes were available in North America. I'm definitely going to be picking up a few for Christmas snacks!

I have to say I have tried a piece of rum cake once at a friend's and it was delish! I think the coconut one would be our fave because hubby and I are crazy for coconut!
